This week I had some fun with
spicy-sections, an experimental custom element that turns a bunch of headings and content into tabs.

Not sure. Could Micropub rely on this rather than a separate IndieAuth plugin?
How about you, do you have already existing projects that could benefit from application passwords or projects that can only be built now that application passwords are in core?

And over two thirds of them stem from not or wrongly escaping user inputs, and would’ve been avoided by running a static analyzer, like PHPCS with WordPress’s ruleset.
The vast majority of the vulnerabilities you hear about in the WordPress ecosystem come from plugins[.]
This is what most “notes”—this particular one being a reply—typically look like in my WordPress editor. If it were a bit longer, I’d probably have the outgoing link in the
e-content itself, but for shorter notes, a brief introduction/post context works well enough. Note that this “context” is purposely kept out of the
e-content, so as not to show Microsub (or otherwise mf2-compatible) readers the same information twice. (Most, if not all, Microsub apps explicitly display
reply-to URLs above replies. “Regular” RSS subscribers get to see the entire entry.) The title, by the way, is automatically generated and neither given a
p-name class on the front end nor shown in RSS, which is the way it should be (for notes).
Wow! The Box Acid Test, IE’s quirks mode, K10K, the birth of Firefox (which used to be Phoenix, and then Firebird) … So many memories (of me, all by myself, in front of a screen).
Turning this mockup of a CO₂ measurement visualization into HTML and SVG, I needed to draw part of a circle. Stumbled upon pretty much this. https://codepen.io/janboddez/pen/jOmXjXW Successfully ported it to PHP, looks like we’re good to go.
Yes! Firefox on Android used to actually have “View Source,” and I’d use it fairly often, too, dangit.
Have you ever wished you could see the HTML source of a web page while on a mobile browser, which generally doesn’t offer that feature?
Update: Turns out prefixing a URL with “view-source:” still works! Thank you, Josh.
Yep, keep noticing this, too, and it’s f—king dumb.
Not everything has to be for money. We’re engineers; we’re already in the, like, top 5% or so. I’ve got my investment account generating plenty passive income I’ll likely never need.
Everyone and their dog seemed to have a project that generates passive income; I want a slice too!
Added a job to my feed aggregator/Microsub server that quickly validates mf2 media, i.e., the URLs that end up in entries’
video arrays, by means of a HEAD request. If the server returns a 404 (or similar), the URL is probably faulty (e.g., the result of a misplaced
u-photo tag), and the item removed from the list. No more (well, definitely less) “broken images” below posts!
In “Fear Street 1994” a boy is seen typing in a chat room and it clearly shows he’s using the font “Calibri” which was not created until 2002 and was not released to the general public until Windows Vista in 2007.

I would hate if catching up on RSS feeds felt like catching up on email. Maybe that’s why I’m never entirely comfortable with newsletters—if there’s an option to subscribe by RSS instead of email, I’ll always take it.
Interestingly, my “Press This” bookmarklet still works, and its use correctly results in a new “bookmark” (rather than a “regular” post). Must’ve done something right! Next up: make those “read” posts instead! Ultimately, I want a new CPT for reads, one that I’ll likely keep private. I also want each new “read” to lead to the item being added to my feed reader (and read-it-later app).
